Join Chicago’s “Fashion Star” Barbara Bates on October 28th for her “Knocking Out Breast Cancer” charity event
As a breast cancer survivor, Bates was inspired to help in “Knocking Out Breast Cancer” by working to raise awareness during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and literally putting a face on the fight. The charity event will feature 50 breast cancer survivors who will model a special collection of fashions designed by Barbara Bates Designs.
The “Knocking Out Breast Cancer” event will help raise money for the Barbara Bates Foundation’s Institutional Grant on Disparity and Education of Breast Cancer. This grant will serve to educate and address the disparities in breast cancer care faced by women in the African American and Latino communities. This event also marks the launch of a partnership between the Barbara Bates Foundation in conjunction with the Lynn Sage Cancer Research Foundation benefiting the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University and the Sinai Health System.
The Barbara Bates Foundation is committed to education and awareness. “Knocking Out Breast Cancer” is about saving lives. This night is dedicated to a celebration of courage and determination, as women who have triumphed over breast cancer take the runway and model Bates’ most spectacular designs. Guests will see and hear stories of women who have risen above the odds as they proudly strut their stuff in Barbara’s latest creations.
Please join us in support of this event, the proceeds of which will positively impact families and communities throughout Chicago!
